Breast Ultrasound

With breast ultrasound, the breast tissue is viewed using sonography instead of X-ray. This allows your radiologist to differentiate between a solid mass (benign or malignant tumors) and a liquid mass (cyst).

We offer state-of-the-art technology, but it’s not just the sophisticated equipment that’s important. It’s the healthcare professionals performing the procedure and interpreting the results. Our radiologists have devoted their careers to breast imaging and their experience determines the future breast health of thousands of women annually. Dr. Nagi Khouri, director of breast imaging at Johns Hopkins Medicine, was selected by Medical Imaging Magazine as one of the top five women’s imaging specialists in the country.
